An authoritative study of the dangers nations face today from weapons of mass destruction and the successes and failures of international nonproliferation efforts. This proliferation atlas documents with maps, charts, and graphs the spread of nuclear, chemical, and biological weapons and missile delivery systems. The book describes the weapons and the regimes that try to control them; it also details the countries that have, want, or have given up weapons of mass destruction. Deadly Arsenals provides the most up-to-date and comprehensive assessment available on the subject and is a valuable resource for policymakers, scholars, students, and the media.
